Abstract

The DC Fueling Learning study seeks to begin to evaluate the physical activity environment among DC Public elementary schools. Data was collected from four elementary schools using accelerometers and surveys to assess school-time physical activity, physical activity self-efficacy and social support, and school physical activity environment. This evaluation will be utilized as a starting point in understanding school-time physical activity behaviors and identify areas of greatest need for improving the policies and programs of participating schools along with the broader D.C. Public School system.
